hit the garden like a technicolour shell
Weed hackers squatted and snarled at ankles where suburb edge bled into ghetto.
I groped at the streets till
I knew them, terrified
I’d fall out.”

Baby Teeth is the debut poetry collection by Madison O’Dwyer. It tells the story of a poet and a city slowly falling in love — and then being thrown abruptly out of it. From the drunken griefs and uncertain romances of youth to the curves of the sky and the edges of the waterfront, Baby Teeth is what is left when an adolescence is shed in our city of sails: a book of wolfishly devoured moments, the first real bites of life.
Open Mic: all welcome to read/perform
